Grande was performing at the Manchester Arena late last month when a bomb detonated near one of the venue's exits, killing 22 victims and injuring more than 100. "It was invaluable. She was so honest".

Other fans also took to social media to share their experiences about the surprise visit. "We won't let hate win", Grande said in a statement. "I'm so proud of you, you are so strong and doing really well", she told an 8-year-old fan. "Never seen jaden so happy!even cried again myself".

Jaden Farrell Mann, a young Manchester survivor, tweeted pictures of the pop star along with the message "I got to meet my queen today".

On Friday police had cordoned off an area in southern Manchester and a bomb-disposal team was called out as a vehicle was removed. He was the 17th person detained in connection with the bombing.
